Description

Seattle might be known its incredible natural surroundings of the Pacific Northwest which attracts outdoor adventurers, and its food scene which coffee aficionados and foodies adore, but that’s not to say that the city is lacking in arts and culture! The Emerald City recently ranked first in America for the number of arts related businesses per capita and is packed with museums, art galleries, music venues, bookstores and theatres where you can watch productions from Shakespeare to contemporary ballet. So let a local take you on an adventure through some of Seattle’s most creative, innovative and contemporary cultural and arts venues so you can see another side of this dynamic city.

Whether you’re interested in sculpture or photography, ballet or contemporary dance, live music or getting lost in bookstores, let a local show you the best of Seattle’s art, music and cultural scene. You could spend your day exploring the various sculpture parks such as the Olympic Sculpture Park or Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit. These two parks feature some incredible structures by famous sculptors such as Dale Chihuly, Louise Bourgeois, Mark di Suvero, and Alexander Calder. Or you could head to the Seattle Center to see the Space Needle or visit the Museum of Pop Culture. You could also visit the Frye Art Museum which is slightly more intimate and features a cluster of galleries which are simple yet extraordinary. After you’ve worked up an appetite marvelling at art, take a lunch break at Pike Place Market. Here you can try authentic Pacific Northwest cuisine while you explore the artisanal crafts created by Seattle locals. Head out in search of an amazing music experience. Let your local know if you’re interested in live music, museums or anything in between. They could take you to the EMP (Experience Music Project) Museum, which is not only an astounding structure, it was founded by local billionaire and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who wanted to create a monument to rock and roll! If you’re into cinema, check out Cinerama, which features single curved screen and shows classics like Lawrence of Arabia and a special print of 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well as first-run event films.
